MONA is, itself, a beautiful, old, white marble post office that has been restored and expanded to include an outdoor sculpture garden. The Nebraska Art Collection was put together in 1976 and most of the money for doing so was private donation, largely from Cliff Hillegas (you know: Cliff's notes).

The collection includes the work of artists who have lived in Nebraska. The exception to that rule is Audubon whose pieces depict birds and animals that are common in Nebraska.

The galleries are full of work that ranges from cutting edge modern to historic exploration(Catlin, Thos. Hart Benton, etc).

If you go, don't pass up running up the steps to the skylight gallery. It usually holds the work of an emerging artist. Very interesting.

Kearney is far and away the best community in Nebraska outside Lincoln or Omaha as far as entertainment and dining goes.

I dont recommend Kearney for International students.Many International students like us had trouble during their visit and study.Most students are complaining about racism and discrimination.I am one of them.Even university does not do anything to stop this embarrasing situation.Ironically Public safety and American students are happy with that

To Curensy:

Sans knowing your particular situation and where you are from, I feel badly that you have had a bad experience at UNK or in Kearney.

Having traveled other countries, sometimes I just get weary exchanging money and language and following a map. When you're tired, anyway, it's awful to have to field insults, as well! So sorry.

Having employed a number of hispanic workers, I often find that we are just misinterpreting each other's teasing per our way with words. I am always careful to explain what I mean--like jokes over someone's printed T-shirt.

Not everyone in Kearney is "closed" to the idea of someone different than him/herself. Some of us really appreciate your sharing with our predominantly rural, 'white' students, another part of the globe and something other than Northern European descent. The big, big world is getting smaller and smaller. Whoever was rude to you will one day, wake up in a place where he/she is the 'different' one.

I hope you have had some good times and that our arts community expanded your ideas more than our diet expanded your health. :-)

I agree with dsrich98. I visit friends in Omaha twice a year and I have stopped in Kearney several times. One of these days when I have an extra day to lay over I'd like to visit the archway.

I have found Kearney people to be very friendly.

Thumbs up Kearney, an attractive small city

Kearney's a great stopover, but it wouldn't be a destination on my trip. That said, it's a very pleasant small city that always looked to me like a nice midwestern town to move to if I ever had the inclination. Looks to me like it'd rate high on "quality of life" indicators.
